What is TeachMeet?


A TeachMeet is an informal gathering of teachers and those connected with education, who come together to share ideas and show off some of the things they have been trying in their classrooms. While traditionally the focus of Teachmeets has been on how technology has been used to enhance teaching, at the Swansea edition we're happy to hear about anything you've tried that made a difference and you think should be shared with a wider audience.


Teachmeets are free to attend, with all costs being covered by Sponsorship. You are welcome to come and 'lurk' in the audience or get up and present for either 2 or 7 minutes. The order of presentations is drawn at random and the whole thing is streamed online for people who can't make it! The only limit to presentations is that they must be based on experience - anyone trying to deliver a sales pitch will be stopped (traditionally by having a camel thrown at them!)


Here are Tim and Moby from BrainPop to explain a little more clearly...



If you would like to attend, either to present to in the audience you need to sign up below. To do that follow the instructions on 'editing the page' below. If you have any questions or have problems signing up, you can email tmswansea at gmail.com
